‘Pucked’ is one of the best series I have ever read. I really enjoy reading sports romance and by the help of the books, I learned a lot about different sports that I wasn’t interested before. As for Hockey, I didn’t know anything about it before but thanks to books and Google I learned a lot 🙂 I love Helena Hunting’s style and read all her books. If you guys didn’t read any of her work, I strongly recommend you to read one of her books.
‘Pucked’ is the first book of the series. Our hero and heroine of the book are Alex Waters and Violet Hall. Alex is sexy, smart, and successful hockey player, who is the captain of the Hawks. He is also famous for his ‘hat trick’ in the bedroom. Violet is beautiful, smart and really awkward mostly in social environments. She is a recent college graduate who works as a junior accountant in a PR firm that is specializes in sports financial management. So how these two met, we have to thank Buck for that 🙂 Buck is Violet’s stepbrother, who is also a hockey player and because of his man-slut reputation and a mishap with his coach’s niece, he gets traded to Hawks. Violet’s mom decides that best way to support Buck is go to his first game with his new team as a family. Violet doesn’t enjoy hockey and thanks to Buck and her past experience with a hockey player, she is smart enough to know to stay away from hockey players. However, after the game she ends up mouth-fucking Alex and gets caught by Buck. She tries to make herself believe that one-night stand with Alex will be good but she knows that she has to see him again. After getting caught by Buck, she goes back to her room and convinces herself that she did the right thing by not going back to Alex’s room. But all her rational thoughts go out the window when Alex goes to her suite and asks her if she wants to hangout. After spending the night with Alex, Violet learns that Alex has graduated university with a degree in English Literature, he is polite, concerned and quite a gentleman. But she is sure that she will not hear from him again, because of his man-slut reputation. OMG she was sooo wrong to think that because Alex is persistent. He calls, texts, e-mails and start sending gifts and everyday it gets harder for Violet to avoid him. At the end, Violet gives in and decides to give him a chance. Everything is going good until the media gets involve and Violet decides it is better to stay away from him. But Alex is a persistent guy and doesn’t want to let go of Violet, so what happens…. That is for you to find out 🙂
It is a great book. I was laughing out loud one minute; swooning and getting hot the next. Overall, if you are looking to read something funny, sexy and heartwarming, you should definitely go for ‘Pucked’.
